About the honoree

Father Quinn served as the 25th president of The University of Scranton from July 2011 to June 2017. From his first days on campus, Father Quinn demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to Jesuit Catholic higher education and a deep appreciation for the pivotal role athletics can play in enhancing both the overall student experience and the University community as a whole.

On May 8, 2018, the University dedicated the Kevin P. Quinn, S.J. Athletics Campus, its brand-new, $14 million athletic facility, in recognition of Father Quinn’s special interest in promoting athletics and his relentless support of Scranton’s student-athletes. Father Quinn strongly advocated for the development of the athletics campus, and his role in spearheading the fundraising efforts needed to make this longtime University dream a reality cannot be overstated.

In addition to his support of the athletics campus, Father Quinn oversaw the addition of Women’s Golf and Men’s and Women’s Track and Field at Scranton. He was also very supportive of the creation of The Royal Way, the Department of Athletics initiative that provides our student-athletes with a distinctly Jesuit athletics experience rooted in the religious and spiritual foundations of the University’s Catholic and Jesuit mission.

About the event

Since 2011, the Peter A. Carlesimo Award has been presented to someone who has made special contributions to athletics and Catholic education. The Golf Tournament and Award Dinner serves as a fundraising event to support and enhance the student-athlete experience at The University of Scranton. For more information, visit
